PIXMA TR4520 Printer Head Alignment Issues

I have had my printer for about a month, and have run the alignment steps so many times, I blew through the initial ink cartridges that come with the printer.  I can get the bottom and top parts of a page aligned, but not the entire page, so print jobs are blurry.  

 

Are there things to check that could be causing the issue?

Do I reset the printer and start initial setup again?

Could the drivers from the other Canon PIXMA printer I had be causing issues?

 

Any guidance would be appreciated before I call into the support line or take it to a service center.

Hi JayneCobb1973,

 

To troubleshoot this issue, I would recommend performing two Cleanings followed by printing the Nozzle Check Pattern.

 

Click HERE for information on performing the Cleaning process.

Re: PIXMA TR4520 Printer Head Alignment Issues

Looks like I will have to call in.  Yesterday I ran 2 cleanings, 2 deep cleanings, and 2 nozzle checks.  I printed out an email and everything looked fine.

 

Today, I turned on the printer and preceeded to print another email.  The skewed lines and "double vision" returned.  On top of that, I had 2 paper jams in a spamn of 30 secs.  

 

I didn't have a problem with my older PRIXMA.
